The Grays Harbor PUD complied with state laws and adequately safeguarded public assets in 2013, according to a report from the Washington State Auditor. This is the 14th consecutive clean audit for the utility.
“This report is the result of the excellent work of every person who works for the Grays Harbor PUD,” said PUD Commissioner Russ Skolrood. “Our customers expect and deserve a well-run and responsible public utility district and this report is evidence that we continue to provide that to them.”
The state auditor analyzes the PUD’s practices annually, examining the utility’s open public meetings, utility account adjustments, general revenue and expenses, procurement, key system controls, general disbursements, on-call contracting, discount program, bond covenants and payroll.
The auditor released a separate report stating that the PUD complied with the Energy Independence Act of 2006, a law that required utilities with more than 25,000 customers to meet renewable energy and conservation targets.
